hi richard, et al!
the only tapes i know of are called "say it with sign". "talk with your
hands" is also a pretty good book. wish i could remember the author(s).
you might try your public library. if that fails, try your local bookstore.
if i find things like this at the library, i usually go ahead & buy if i see
it's going to be of any benefit ("try it before you buy it"). hope this helps.
